Put a Fork in it

For those looking for a little extra help to lose weight, we’ve seen plates created to control portion size. Now there’s more active encouragement – right as you take a bite. The Hapifork is a smart utensil, with built-in sensors which detect your eating pace, amount of servings per minute, and how long it took you to finish your meal. If you eat too quickly, the fork sends off little alarms – vibrating and lighting up, to remind you to slow down. When finished, users connect the fork via USB or bluetooth to an online system that tracks eating habits, helping them change their behaviors bite by bite.
